Get The Look: Lea Michelle’s Soft Waves

Here’s how to achieve Lea Michelle’s stunning soft waves as seen at the SAG Awards, simply using a ghd styler! Plus read on to find out how you can trade-in your unwanted styling tools and receive $30 off a ghd Gold Classic Styler!

First, prep your hair

Using ghd Thermal Protector and ghd Sea Spray lightly apply to damp hair and thoroughly power dry into the hair.


1. Section the hair in circular sections from the nape to the front of your head.

2. Using all three of the ghd Gold styler sizes (mini, classic, max), start with either of them. Hold the styler at the roots, turn to 360 degrees, pull through the hair slowly then change direction by rotating the styler another 360 degrees in the opposite direction then move through the hair. This creates a very natural soft curl rather than a ringlet.

By using all three ghd sizes you have a variation of movement and this makes the style look softer.

3. Continue through all sections until you reach the top. Section the top of your hair through your parting. Take sections going through the parting and place the max styler at the roots, turn slightly and move towards the ends maintaining very slight movement.

Tip: Be sure to keep the same styler size around your face so it’s even.


Apply a small amount of ghd Polishing Serum in your hands and softly weave your fingers through your hair to break it up. Use ghd Ultimate Hairspray for extra hold if needed.
